California Dressage Society Championship Show, October 2004.
Mondeo was sidelined with a minor injury after being cast in his stall, but his stablemate Domino carried on in Mondeo's absence. Donna rode Domino to third in both the USDF Intermediate I and Intermediate Freestyle Championships as well as placing fifth in the CDS Open Intermediate I and sixth in the CDS Intermediate Freestyle. Katy Barglow rode her Le Mans to the CDS Intermediate II Championship and the USDF Intermediate II Reserve. Way to go Katy! Valerie Cheatham finished fifth in the huge CDS Futurity, ridden at first level test 2 and 3. Quite an achievement on a horse she picked out as a yearling! Angela Spucces' St. James almost didn't make it to the show ring, popping a foot abscess the first day of the show. Luckily, with a lot of attention, James recovered in time to compete in the USDF first level championships on the last day of the show. Better luck next year at second and third level, Angela.
